has a population of over 22 million people. when new york city evacuated just these areas in the five burrows for this storm, the people who were subject to just that order, just the people who live in the red area as marked on this map, just those people and just that population was larger than half the population of more than a handful of u.s. states. just the population in that evacuation area is the population of the whole city of new orleans and as you can see, this is just a fraction of that densely populated area. and a lot remain living under circumstances they have never lived in before. tonight rescue efforts here are ongoing in northern new jersey. several towns along the hackensack river were inundated with water when a tidal surge from the river overflowed its banks. normally the water rises up through the ground, but this time they said it came down the streets and started pouring into their basements first like a trickle and then as one little boy will describe like a waterfall. they said there was no place to run, no place to hide. they literally had 15 to 45 minutes d
night. right outside this building in the biggest city in the country, there's a massive storm that's just made landfall and all day long has been imposing its will on the atlantic coast from the carolinas all the way up to new england. it has toppled cranes on skyscrapers. this is that crane falling today. yeah, it has toppled cranes on skyscrapers, it has flooded the eastern sea board. it has messed up the presidential election. but this giant storm called sandy is not over yet. the storm making landfall just outside atlantic city, new jersey, at 8:00 p.m. eastern time tonight. forecasters calling sandy a post pos post-tropical cyclone which might sound better, but it isn't better. all it means is the storm has lost the characteristics of a tropical cyclone but still has hurricane-force winds. we want to go near where sandy made landfall. thank you for joining us. what can you tell us about the scene at the site of the landfall? >> reporter: things are a little calmer now than a couple hours ago as sandy came ashore just a few miles south of where we are. the winds have kicked up

from new york and parts of new york city are underwater this morning. the images from lower manhattan shows cars half submerged. tunnels, subways and the financial district flooded. all of lower manhattan is in the dark. some of those outages caused by a con ed substation that exploded overnight. more than 1.5 million have lost power across new york city, long island and westchester. now we also want to show you these pictures from breezy point, queens, at least 50 homes have been destroyed by fire. further east at least seven homes on fire island have fallen into the ocean. atlantic city, new jersey, took the full force of sandy when it came ashore around 8:00 last night. people that defied an evacuation order are trapped there now. roads are impassable. serious damage is being reported in several beach communities from point pleasant to seaside heights. rescues are under way in belmar, one of several cities that saw the boardwalk ripped away. further north in hoboken, the mayor estimates half the city is underwater. 2.2 million people are without power statewide. now, in connecticut
. let's get you caught up on how things are looking and start in new york city right now. where it is eerily dark. over pretty much all of lower manhattan. more than 300,000 new yorkers without power. more than 3 million up and down the east coast are i want sesti the dark at this hour. some of the worst damage here in new york is downtown, by battery park, where a near 14-foot wall of water has flooded the streets as well as the brooklyn battery tunnel which connects brooklyn and manhattan. that is one of two major commuter tunnels in new york that flooded tonight. this storm has left a path of destruction in its wake. the "associated press" reports at least 15 deaths associated with sandy. mostly the result of falling trees. storm-related deaths have been confirmed in new york, new jersey, west virginia, pennsylvania, connecticut. within the last hour, we've learned that a firefighter in connecticut died after a tree hit his vehicle as he was responding to an emergency. the new york city mayor's office reports that local 911 operators have been overwhelmed getting 10,000 calls
there. all the while, resenting the african-american turnout machine. in the city of cleveland, ohio, african-american voters are 26 times more likely than white voters to use early in-person voting as their preferred way of voting. for this election in particular, even though it's been fine for every election in the past seven years, for this election in particular, early in person voting must be stopped. to the point of taking it to the supreme court of the united states with 28 days left before the election and meanwhile leaving the whole state's voting rules hanging. as ohio hits its voter registration deadline today and so many other states as well, what we know about how the parties have done on voter registration in the swing states opens a real interesting window into how the two parties are contesting the important states. this is a matter not just of national but of international importance. you can tell because the guardian newspaper from the uk has published a deep look into swing state voter registration numbers this past weaning. you can see their headline here. democra
for catholic charities here in new york city, has ended up becoming a really important thing in american presidential politics. honestly, the biggest reason it is really important is because of its timing. there are other dinners like this. the gridiron dinner in washington or the alfalfa dinner or the correspondence dinner. there are other dinners that are fancy politics proms, essentially. where you get a sitting president or very high-level politician showing up in tuxedos and gowns and telling jokes and sharing stages with people they otherwise would not be sharing stages with. that happens. right? there are those events in washington and elsewhere around the country. but this one that you are looking at right here is different. because this one happens now. a couple of weeks before the election. and it's always timed like that. every time. and traditionally, both presidential candidates go to these things. i mean, there are some years where the dinner conflicts directly with the debate or rarely one of the candidates will decide to blow this dinner off. walter mondale did that 1984.
. >> tomorrow it's back to campaigning. i've been to cities and towns across our great country, and i hear the same thing everywhere i go. honestly, we were hoping to see michelle. >> that was not president obama's funniest joke of the night, but it turns out that what he said there is actually kind of true. at least the underlying point of it, which is that people apparently really, really like to see michelle obama out on the campaign trail. this is mrs. obama today speaking at a campaign rally in racine, wisconsin. there were something like 2,500 people, capacity crowd crammed in to see mrs. obama. we know it was a capacity crowd because there was also a line of people several blocks long outside who were trying to get in to see her but who could not get into the room. so when president obama says people are sometimes disappointed that they do not get michelle, i don't know about people's comparative feelings about seeing the two of them, but the first lady is a very, very effective campaigner on her husband's behalf. as she showed today in wisconsin. at the al smith dinner, though, the

[ cheeping ] [ male announcer ] you hear that? that's the sound of car insurance companies these days. here a cheap, there a cheap, everywhere a cheap... you get it. so, what if instead of just a cheap choice, you could make a smart choice? like, esurance for example. they were born online and built to save people money from the beginning. it's what they've always done. not just something they cheap about. that's in
romney for president campaign. that is amazing. tonight right now just across town in new york city, donald trump is doing a fundraising event for the mitt romney campaign with paul ryan. they are at a closed-door fundraiser with donald trump. "the new york times" printed a letter from a man who was the campaign strategist for mitt romney's father for three campaigns back when george romney was governor of michigan. he's harshly critical of mitt romney and how mr. romney is running his campaign. he says he was annoyed by mr. romney's references to his father as inspiration and influence on him. "i just don't see it." george would never have been seen with the likes of sheldon adelson or donald trump. regardless of the spit take it causes from your father's old friends as you try to wrap yourself in the mantle of your father's integrity, the fact is funds must be raised and the romney campaign announced that just last month in september they raised $170 million chrks, which is a lot but is $10 million less than the obama campaign raised. the campaigns are closely matched with what th
in new york city just a couple weeks ago. now glen beck is doing a gala fund-raiser with dick cheney with 12 days to go before the election. i can't -- >> first of all, the glenn beck thing, to me, suggests he's still trying to win over the base of the republican party. or the craziest part of the base. but as you indicated, he's trying, romney is trying to hide his real positions, have this mask of moderation. he's running a pseudo pro-choice. i don't even want to dignify it with that label. ad. and so, and he's trying to, you know, put mourdock in the closet with akin. and, yet, it's all undone by appearance by glenn beck or donald trump. at the same time, on the foreign policy front, after presenting himself in the last debate as a peace nick, who said, i don't want to have another iraq or afghanistan. you know, he took back every single position -- this is, of course, what colin powell was alluding to -- to be involved with dick cheney, completely undoes that. dick cheney is the foreign policy who supposedly disowning last week. >> that's why i feel like this is important because
in that city. they've expanded early voting hours there, so people can vote there, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., seven days a week. early voting in indianapolis goes right up to noon on the day before election day. and that popularity of early voting in the state of indiana has to be driving one particular u.s. senate candidate quite nuts at the moment. >> i believe that life begins at conception. the only exception i have for -- to have an abortion, is in that case of the life of the mother. i just -- i struggled with it myself for a long time, but i came to realize that life is that gift from god, and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> generally speaking, it's never a great idea to opine right into a microphone about what you think god's will has to do with a woman's rape. and her getting pregnant because of that rape. that is, generally speaking, never a good thing. but when you say say that at a time when people can hear that you said that, and then as soon as they heard that you said that, they can then
